17-year-old shot in foot during drive-by shooting near north Tulsa convenience store

A drive-by shooting sent a teenage boy to the hospital Thursday.

A group of three men, including a 17-year-old, were walking north on Fulton Avenue heading to a convenience store in the 5600 block of East Pine Street when a white Ford Escape containing several people "flashing handguns" stopped to argue with the group around 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Sgt. Phil Whitehead said in a news release.

The vehicle then reportedly drove around the area several times before someone inside fired about 12 shots from a small-caliber handgun, Whitehead said.

As the men attempted to flee, the 17-year-old was shot in the foot, Whitehead said. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for a wound that was not considered life threatening.

Police said the incident is being treated as a shooting with intent to kill.

A detailed description of the assailants — believed to be three men and a woman — have not been released.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677), at or through the Tulsa Tips app, which can be downloaded from the Google Play or iTunes stores.

Tipsters may remain anonymous, and cash rewards are paid for information leading to arrests.
